Ubuntu Servers :: 8.04 - Apache Access Log Stopped

Mar 6, 2010

I am running an apache server thru webmin, on a 8.04 install. Attempting to install awstats I have realized that access.log stopped writing some months ago. Went back thru the error logs and found I had deleted the virtual server, and started a new one. Everything else works fine, it never even occurred to me that logging would not also be restarted. I would just like to get it going again, any clues???

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Access Though VPN

Sep 1, 2010

just switched our company from windows server to linux and everything is going good except we have 4 vpn connections though out the country coming to our server. All giving the client machines ip addresses of 192.168.x.x based on where they are located 192.168.1.x for the main location 192.168.2.x for a second location etc, and IIS could see the clients ip instead of the wan ip and was setup to block all ips except 192.168.x.x ip's and this worked great.

So i set up apache the same way, to allow only 192.168 ip's but i guess it doesn't work that way in apache for connections coming though vpn? 2 out of our 4 VPN connections are not static IP's, so the 2 that are I just add that ip to the allow list and that worked.But i don't think we should HAVE to get static ips for the other 2, that's one of the benefits of using VPN, especially if our old windows server didnt need it.Is there any way for apache to see the clients ip address for access or is there something somewhere else that needs changed for this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Log And Remotely Access Desktop

Mar 9, 2011

I came back to see on the screen a message requesting remote desktop control. So I said no and went into remote desktop and said never allow connection. I had recently hosted a PHP app on the home pc for testing purposes using apache. Here are some of the last logs entries:

Code: - - [08/Mar/2011:18:26:34 -0500] "POST /z3950search.php HTTP/1.1" 200 1731 "http://localhost/z3950search.php" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110303 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.15" - - [08/Mar/2011:18:26:37 -0500] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 404 500 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110303 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.15" - - [08/Mar/2011:18:26:38 -0500] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 404 500 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110303 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.15" .....

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Access Apache - Any Server Over My Primary Ip Address / Do That?

May 17, 2010

I have no idea what is going on here and this is the second time it has done this but. I just installed Lucid Lynx Desktop Edition for my Server. I have installed apache php5 mysql binarys. I have 3 ips on the machine,, .30 is the main ip 10/100 the rest are 10,100,1000 ports. I can only access Apache 2.2 over .37 or .38 but not .30

Ubuntu Servers :: HTTP Response Into Apache Access Logs

Jul 6, 2011

I am new to web server support. I have a request from my management to modify the logging slightly. Effectively I need to redirect a custom string from our http response into the apache access logs. When a user navigates to our site they receive a "dye" number that is associated with them. This number follows them to whatever cluster they are directed too. The string is formatted as such, com-company-dye: d0a2#6dfce. I need that that header dye to appear in the access logs so we can use that dye number as a key for troubleshooting issues though out our various monitoring systems.

Fedora Servers :: Shared Access With Samba And Apache

Mar 30, 2011

I'm trying to set up a computer to allow a specific samba user to access and write to a folder on the web-server without any luck. I've tried creating symbolic links in the users home to the folder (/var/www/html/something) on the web server and from the server to a directory in the users home but neither seems to work. I haven't seen any errors from SELINUX either but I'm kind of stuck. Also tried adding a directory section and alias line to the httpd.conf but after doing that apache wouldn't start so I'm not really sure how this would be done properly.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Virtual Host To Access Internal Server?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm not sure is this is possible or not, but what I would like to do is take my public address mydomain.com and configure a virtual host something.mydomain.com only instead of having the content on the same server I would like it to point to the IP of my virtual machine that is in my private network and display that page publicly. Does anyone know if this is possible, or how to do it? I have done this with port forwards, but would like them both to be on the same port.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Setup For Hostname Access On Local Network

Apr 13, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu on four machines at work and have been blown away. On my machine I have Apache setup for web development and other machines can "see" it using my IP address. I would like to have it so they can access by the name of my computer though. I have no local DNS server so I guess I need to hard code the relationship in each machine? Ideally I'd actually like to be able to use subdomains (which I use locally to avoid annoying .htaccess path problems). i.e. from another machine on the network to go to [URL].

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Include Hostname In Access.log And Error.log File Names?

Feb 8, 2010

I am sure this information is out there somewhere, but Googling apache access.log and hostname does not give you any good leads... so I hope someone here might be able to provide me with a quick answer...I am setting up a cluster of web servers, so I would like to name the access.log and error.log with the hostname of the individual servers to be able to distinguish one from another.

Fedora Servers :: Cannot Start Apache - No Read / Write Access To HTTP Files

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to setup my webserver and I am trying to make a website to run under suexec but somehow I cannot start my apache it directly fails and SELinux is giving me errors and don't really know what to do with it, it is giving me some command to type but not sure if this will make my server less secure. The SELinux error is as follow:

SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files.

Detailed Description:
SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files. Ordinarily httpd is allowed full access to all files labeled with http file context. This machine has a tightened security policy with the httpd_unified turned off, this requires explicit labeling of all files. If a file is a cgi script it needs to be labeled with httpd_TYPE_script_exec_t in order to be executed. If it is read-only content, it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_content_t, it is writable content. it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_script_rw_t or httpd_TYPE_script_ra_t. You can use the chcon command to change these contexts. Please refer to the man page "man httpd_selinux" or FAQ [URL] "TYPE" refers to one of "sys", "user" or "staff" or potentially other script types.

Allowing Access:
Changing the "httpd_unified" boolean to true will allow this access: "setsebool
-P httpd_unified=1"

Fix Command:
setsebool -P httpd_unified=1

I will write down how I did setup my server so maybe you can see a mistake I did. First I changed my Apache httpd.conf I added the following to it:
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html index.shtml index.php

SuexecUserGroup ulyaoth ulyaoth
ServerAdmin webmaster@ulyaoth.org
ServerName test.ulyaoth.org
DocumentRoot /var/www/ulyaoth/www/html
ErrorLog /var/www/ulyaoth/logs/error_log
CustomLog /var/www/ulyaoth/logs/access_log common
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/ulyaoth/www/cgi-bin/
<Directory /var/www/ulyaoth/www/cgi-bin/>
AllowOverride none
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
Options +execCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl

Then I created the username "ulyaoth" with the group "ulyaoth" as I specified with my suexec, then I created all the directories as specified in my httpd.conf and "chown ulyaoth:ulyaoth (dirname)" them to the right group and username.

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav + Nautilus = Forbidden - DON'T Have "Options Indexes" In Apache Config File When Try To Access Via Firefox

Feb 20, 2010

I've installed webdav on my server and I can access it fine through cadaver. However, when I try to access it via nautilus, I get Forbidden. It is NOT secured (SSL). When I try to access it via firefox, I get an error since I DO NOT have "Options Indexes" in my apache config file. If I add this option in, then I can browse the root direction and webdav folder via firefox, but still not from nautilus. what other information you need. I've googled and searched the forums for awhile, but not "solutions" I found have worked for me. I want the webdav folder to just be a single folder within the direction, so this is how I have my config file setup:


As a side-note...when I included "Option Indexes", it allowed me to view the passwd.dav file from firefox!That doesn't seem very good...

CentOS 5 :: Apache Error 403 - "Forbidden You Don't Have Permission To Access /bb/ On This Server" - 5.2 With Apache 2.2.3

Jan 20, 2011

I am installing Big Brother on a CentOS 5.2 running the default Apache 2.2.3. When I try to access any web page I get the following error: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /bb/ on this server. Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at fmsubbnix Port 80 So far I have:

1) Set the Directory options to FollowSymLinks
2) Verified all directory and file permissions are at 755
3) Set permissions temporarily to 777 and received same error so I am assuming the issue is in a config file somewhere
4) in hhtpd.conf verified <Files ~ "^.ht"> is correct
5) verified the "default" directory is correct (/var/www/html)

I have read and tried several ideas in posts listed on the web but to no avail and am at a loss as to what to look for next..

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav Access - When Connect From Nautilus - Says - Access Was Denied

Mar 26, 2010

I'm having a problem with my webdav share. I have a secure webdav folder that gets accessed via a non-standard port and requires basic authentication. I can connect and interact with it fine via cadaver. However, when I try to connect from nautilus, it says "Access was denied." To make it even stranger, sometimes I can click on the folder in nautilus (it still mounts) and access it. Sometimes not (just repeats the error message and won't show me the contents). I may not even un-mount it, but just look at other folder, then click it again and be able to access it, but again - only rarely.

I asked a friend to try connecting from his windows vista computer and it would not work. It would not work from my windows XP virtual computer either. However, it mounts and works just find from my work computer (also Windows XP).

So it seems to be a 50/50 chance that the drive will mount on any given computer/system and work. Do anyone know what the problem may be? I'm guessing user permissions, but I can't figure out what.

I've made sure the webdav folder is owned by www-data and www-data has read access to the password file as well.

When I try connecting from nautilus, I get this in the log file:


Here is one of the (many) sites I've tried looking at: [url]

Ubuntu Servers :: Php Stopped Working After Update

Mar 19, 2010

Today i made an update using Webmin, and after that php stopped working, instead of running the files it launches a download. So i checked what was going on, and php module was disabled in apache config. When trying to enable it, it said the file "/usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp5.so" did not exist, and indeed it disapeared. I tried to reinstal php and apache (with and without --purge, through apt) and it didn't solved the problem.

Also i tried copying the file from another machine, also without success (this time it shows " Apache is running a threaded MPM, but your PHP Module is not compiled to be threadsafe. You need to recompile PHP.") Dont know what to do now, im kinda desperated here because this machine hosts my website =P

Ubuntu Servers :: SSH Stopped Working - Cannot Restart

May 26, 2011

I am running a headless home file server with ssh, samba, webmin and webgui for Transmission. It was all working fine on my lan until I tried to set ssh to listen on a different port (I read it was safer to do so if you wanted access from the internet). Now I cannot ssh into my server and as far I can tell using webmin the ssh process is no longer running and I cannot restart it. I have restored my unmodified sshd_config file. After restoring my original config file and rebooting I am back and working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Access Apache From Outside The LAN?

Mar 18, 2010

I have set up a hostname on dyndns.com and configured my router to forward port 8181, but I cannot view it from the internet (FF says "can't establish a connection to the server"). The DNS is ok, is just the apache webserver that doesn't work.

I can acces my webserver from
http://localhost:8181 (loopback) (in the LAN)
BUT NOT <hostname>.dyndns.com
Here is my site configuration


So, what's the matter? How can I reach my apache from the internet? Also, I read about routers loopback errors, but this seems not related to it, since I tried to get it through a proxy server, and it failed

Ubuntu :: Can't Access Apache From The Internet

Feb 15, 2011

I can access dirac.org from inside my network; I can't access it from outside my home network. Apache is running on a Ubuntu box named "satan": and I'm testing it from a MS Windows machine named "lucifer": My ISP is optimum online, which does not filter port 80.

0. router
The router is a Netgear WNDR3700. All computers on my LAN receive their IP addresses via DHCP, but I've reserved all the IP addresses, so they are essentially static (satan is always, lucifer is always, etc). The router is set up to pass packets destined for port 80 to satan (, which is where Apache runs.

1. tcpdump
Using tcpdump when accessing dirac.org from within the LAN (this is what works):
# tcpdump -i eth0 host ool-18bda2d2.dyn.optonline.net and tcp port 80
ool-18bda2d2.dyn.optonline.net.2826 > satan.www: Flags [S], seq 3934453911, win 65535, options [mss 1460,nop,nop,sackOK], length 0

Ubuntu Servers :: HTAccess Stopped Working For 301 Apache2

Apr 29, 2010

I am not sure what happened, but my .htaccess file is no longer working for my 301 redirects. I did have a hard time getting it working a few weeks back (when I first set it up), unfortunately I did not document it well. Main question is for multiple sites getting redirected, do I want the additional sites listed as aliases? My original setup virtual host config listed seven additional hostnames as aliases.

I later had difficulty with google listing these secondary domains within search result and hurting my page rank. So I setup 301 redirects, and from memory, I had to leave the alias names for the .htacces 301 redirect to work. Now it won't work either way. Can anyone tell me if the aliases need to be in place? Do I need to setup individual vhost files and add an .htacces 301 for each? What is the preferred way to do this? I tried reloading apache2 but it did not help.

Permissions for .htacces:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 eric www-data 866 2010-04-14 12:06 .htaccess
Attaced is my .htaccess. It resides in the site root directory. Also attached is the virtual host config file.

NameVirtualHost *
NameVirtualHost *:443
AddHandler cgi-script .pl
RewriteEngine On

I'm still not sure after hours of reading the various how-to's, what should the file permissions be for the .htaccess. I have not performed any updates during the period it was working till now.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba Stopped Working After IP Changed

Sep 13, 2010

I run Samba version 3.4.7 as a Domain server for our company, and recently we reorganized our IP-addresses. And the Samba server also got a new IP-address. ( -> However, now new computers can not join the domain, and old ones can not connect to it correctly (they get a temp profile).

Windows XP gets a temp profile when connecting, and when trying to join a domain I get this error "A domain controller for the domain HAWAR3 could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly. If the name is correct click Details for troubleshooting".

When trying to connect Windows2008R2 (already a member) it says:
"There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request."
My guess is that is is some problem with WINS or something.

Security :: URL (Not URI) In Apache Access Log?

Mar 6, 2010

I happened to be looking at my Apache-2.2.8 log on an Ubuntu LTS 8.04.4 system, and noticed a few lines like this:
Code: - - [06/Mar/2010:07:04:41 -0800] "GET HTTP/1.1" 200 295 "-" "-" - - [06/Mar/2010:07:05:29 -0800] "GET HTTP/1.1" 200 295 "-" "-"
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - - [06/Mar/2010:07:56:15 -0800] "GET HTTP/1.1" 400 290 "-" "-"

(The third line is me telnetting to the server and trying to issue the same request. Note that I got a 400 error response, while the guy coming from got 200s. Also, if you just open the URL, you get back "hello" (nothing else, just 5 characters). I'm presently putting together a bootable CD with chkrootkit to run on the machine. (I found a thread that mentioned in passing that this was related to PHP, which I have running on that Apache server, but my Google-fu isn't strong enough to track down the original thread.) (After checking with chkrootkit: nothing unusual found.)
